Boxing legend Carmen Basilio, the man who wrested the world middleweight title from the great Sugar Ray Robinson in 1957, has died at the age of 85.

  Edward Brophy, the executive director of the Boxing Hall of Fame in upstate New York, informed the Associated Press that Basilio died early Wednesday in a Rochester hospital. He was being treated for pneumonia.

  Basilio lived in Rochester, New York and was among the first of Hall of Fame inductees in 1990. His career ended in 1961 with a 56-16-7 record that included 27 knockouts.

Basilio’s family said he’d been in failing health since he had heart-bypass operation in 1992.
